Yup, you read that correctly – Australia will be welcoming back tourists from around the globe from 21st Feb 2022!

After nearly 2 years of closed borders, Australia has been slowly opening up to international travel again – with the latest being select student and work visas.

But, in big news announced on 7th Feb, the Prime Minister announced that from 21st February 2022 the country will be relaxing entry requirements to welcome back travellers on all tourist visas again.

…which is obviously awesome news!

Entry Requirements

As you might expect though, there are some entry requirements for this reopening:

  • Proof of vaccination
  • Completed an Australian Health Declaration online (at least 72 hours prior to flying)
  • Negative, pre departure COVID-19 test
  • A valid visa

You can view the full details on entry requirements for Australia on the official immigration website here.
